JL Audio White 8" Marine Subwoofer Driver, Model M8IB5CGWH

M-Series 8-inch Marine Subwoofer Driver for Infinite-Baffle Use (200 W, 4 O) - White Classic Grille

With appropriate system setup, the addition of a subwoofer allows your smaller main speakers to be free of the burden of reproducing low frequencies. This allows your whole system to play louder and to sound cleaner at all listening levels.

Purpose-engineered and built for real marine duty, the M-Series infinite-baffle woofers are designed to operate without a dedicated enclosure. Long excursion capability and rugged suspension systems help produce deep, powerful bass response that will transform your boat's audio system.

The M8IB5 is best used with amplifier power in the 50W - 200W range and is optimized to operate with a large volume of air behind it (at least 1.5 cu. ft. / 42.5 l). If you need a subwoofer driver that operates in a smaller sealed enclosure, select our M10W5, instead.

Like all JL Audio marine speakers, this driver is built to withstand a real saltwater marine environment and deliver years of listening enjoyment.

Features:

  • Dynamic Motor Analysis - DMA Optimized Motor
    JL Audio's proprietary Dynamic Motor Analysis system is a powerful suite of FEA-based modeling systems, first developed by JL Audio in 1997 and refined over the years to scientifically address the issue of speaker motor linearity. This leads to vastly reduced distortion and faithfully reproduced transients... or put simply: tight, clean, articulate bass.
  • Marine Materials / Testing Summary
    The design of marine products requires extensive materials testing to achieve reliability and longevity.
  • Precision Built in U.S.A. Summary
    JL Audio's Miramar, Florida loudspeaker production facility is one of the most advanced in the world.
  • Material Used
    • Injection-molded mica-filled polypropylene cone bodies with synthetic rubber surrounds, specifically formulated with UV inhibitors for marine duty.
    • Marine-grade, synthetic fiber spiders with progressive roll designs to withstand high humidity.
    • Specifically engineered polymer baskets are corrosion and UV-resistant and encapsulate the woofer's motor system to prevent corrosion.
    • Gold-plated, marine-grade brass connection terminals
    • Marine-grade stainless steel mounting hardware is included.
